Ex-Stokies | Another For Cam
Former Stoke striker Cameron Jerome scored his second goal of the season as Norwich drew 1-1 at Ipswich in the East Anglian derby this weekend.
The result leaves Norwich fourth after four matches of the Championship season.
Huddersfield are the surprise pace setters of the division though, and Dean Whitehead marked his first appearance of the campaign with a 2-1 victory against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.
There was a first taste of victory for Paul Gallagher’s Preston, who won 2-0 at QPR, for whom Karl Henry played 55 minutes.
Steve Sidwell’s return to Reading ended in a 2-2 draw for his current side Brighton, whilst Richard Keogh also picked up a point- Derby drawing 0-0 with Aston Villa.
Stephen Kelly was involved in Rotherham’s 1-0 win over Brentford. Ex-youth keeper Dominik Kurasik was an unused substitute for the Bees.
Blackburn remain bottom of the table, but Ben Marshall did help them to their first point of the campaign- a 2-2 draw at home to newly promoted Burton.
Finally in the Championship, just 18,569 turned up to see Birmingham lose 3-1 to neighbours Wolves. Ryan Shotton played the full 90 minutes for the home side.
In the top flight, Ben Foster was beaten twice as West Brom lost 2-1 at home to Everton.
Robert Huth returned from suspension to help Leicester draw with Arsenal, whilst Victor Moses was one of three influential substitutes who helped Chelsea turn defeat to victory at Watford.
Bolton remain top of League One, with Lewis Buxton enjoying a 100% start to life at the Macron Stadium following a 2-1 win over Fleetwood. It’s their best start to a league campaign for 82 years.
Gabriel Zakuani helped Northampton to another draw. Their 0-0 result against Wimbledon was their fourth point from four games.
Meanwhile, Matthew Lund was booked for Rochdale, who lost deep into stoppage time at home to MK Dons.
But it was Moha who took the accolades over the weekend. The current Stoke man had an exceptional game as Shrewsbury beat Chesterfield 2-1. George Waring came on as a late substitute.
In League Two, Danny Pugh was cautioned during Blackpool’s 0-0 draw at home to Wycombe. The draw leaves Blackpool in 12th place.
There was a first league win for Carl Dickinson at his new club, as Notts County won 2-1 at Hartlepool, whilst fellow promotion hero Jon Parkin made his home debut for Newport, coming on as a substitute in their 1-1 draw with Crewe.
Peter Sweeney, who played in the 2004 FA Cup Final for Millwall, saw his Greenwich Borough side taken to a replay by Walton & Hersham in the Preliminary Round of this season’s competition.
In Scotland, Ross County picked up their second win of the season and they are up to third after a brace from Liam Boyce- who scored a hat-trick last weekend- helped Andrew Davies’ side to victory over Kilmarnock. Mark Waddington wasn’t involved for Killie.
